Summary "Jools Holland has had a fascinating life. From playing on bomb sites as a boy in south-east London, to skiving off school and then rocketing to international success with Squeeze, the first twenty years of his life were eventful, chaotic and colourful." "Then came The Tube, the seminal live music programme of the eighties. Along with fellow icon, Paula Yates, Jools Holland's provocative and irreverent style of presenting broke the mould of music shows on British television. It was an exhilarating and exciting time. He made further shows in America and England, and in 1992, began broadcasting Later with Jools Holland, one of the BBC's most successful music programmes of all time, which has given countless television debuts to now world-famous bands." "From playing pubs in the East End docks as a teenager greaser, to leading his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and selling millions of records in this century, it is his passion for music that has made Jools Holland into a doyen of the music scene and which suffuses the pages of this autobiography. Packed with hilarious anecdotes and unusual memories, this memoir provides an inside look into the world of music as well an insight into the debonair gentleman and national institution that is Jools Holland."--BOOK JACKET.
